Scot Sloan, social justice warrior. D. Mike Doonesbury Mark Slackmeyer Phil Slackmeyer Zonker Harris Barbara Ann Boopstein Nguyen Van Phred Bernie Rufus Jackson Rev. Scot Sloan Joanie Caucus Jim Andrews President King Roland Burton Hedley, Jr. In 1970, there were so many banners afield, so many movements afire. And since the action was predominantly playing out on college campuses, I decided to stick with the undergraduate scene I knew. For the next twelve years, the core characters in Doonesbury stayed put, happily hunkered down at Walden, the cozy commune that housed them as they faithfully failed to age out of college.

Ralph smiled back at her serenely and said, “And what’s the strip called? Boopsie? ” Nope, it’s Mike’s strip. Every zoo needs a keeper. D. was a hard case, a knucklehead’s knucklehead. He couldn’t have been less like his inspiration, Yale quarterback Brian Dowling, the nicest guy I’d never met. And that was the joke. Dowling was famously self-effacing, his campus nickname (“God”) not withstanding. He fell all over himself crediting his teammates for the long, unbroken string of victories he engineered as a collegian.

He was abetted, of course, by a charming cartoon convention—the suspension of the aging process—but even after the ban on real time was lifted in 1984, Zonker remained the strip’s perennial man-child. Whatever gains he made in sophistication, he seemed to surrender in maturity, maintaining equilibrium but also paralysis. Thus, a life of odd jobs, sponging off buds, getting baked, and never, ever going on a second date. Zonker took his name from a proto-hippie named Steve “Zonker” Lambrecht, one of the Merry Pranksters immortalized in Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.
